Subject: Dynamite Second Set!
Good soundboard sound, Great performance.
Subject: my first great dead show
Subject: bad stuff dried fish,Keccax, and show yay ok
Subject: my first show
Subject: !My first show
First tour with the new guy on keyboards. Garcia on the left. Lesh on the right.
Subject: Dancing -> Franklin
There isn't a 3 1/2 star rating, but that Dancing->Franklin bit sorta shoves it into that zone for me.
Subject: One of Brent's best of 1979
Great recording, everybody's hot, especially Phil in the superb 2nd set. Heard this today on XM radio's Grateful Dead Channel, still sounds fresh after all of these years!
Subject: This show rocks!!
I don’t know what it is about these Fall/Winter shows from 1979, but I definitely keep coming back to them. Maybe with the release of “Road Trips Vol. I”, it’s like awakening a sleeping giant (as in Garcia). LOL
This first set rocks! It’s not your typical first set, but every song is played with incredible energy and precision. Any time a show starts with Jack Straw, you know you are in for a treat. It’s easy to see how Garcia came from country, folk, and blue grass roots with the way he plays guitar in Me and My Uncle and Big River! That’s just classic boogie music at its best! And if you want to know how Garcia and Mydland developed such incredible chemistry, all’s you have to do is listen to this version of Brown Eyed Women. The guitar and keyboards are totally in sync! Stagger Lee is super mellow and Bob Weir’s rhythm guitar and incredible vocals are easily displayed on Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance > while ending the set with a kick-ass version of Deal (Garcia’s trademark). I love that song!
When Garcia released his first solo record in 1972, Deal was certainly the centerpiece of that album! If you don’t own “All Good Things” (the 6-CD box set from Jerry Garcia), go to his website and buy it! It’s awesome. It has his 5 studio CDs, plus 4 hours of previously unreleased studio music. On the 1972 solo record, Garcia handled the vocals as well as acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel guitar, bass, piano and organ duties. The album was co-written by Grateful Dead percussionist Bill Kreutzmann (who plays drums on the record) and longtime Grateful Dead/Garcia lyricist Robert Hunter. The remastered edition of Garcia features the album's original ten songs plus eight bonus tracks, including alternate takes of "Sugaree" and "Loser." Anyone who doesn’t have Garcia as their top 5 guitarists need to have their head examined! Plus his vocals have truly been missed since his death in 1995.
Set 2 from this show is as good as Set 1. I’m not a huge Dancin’ fan, but I really like this version. Brent’s vocals on this song are better than Donna’s versions (except maybe from the ’77 shows (like the Philly Spectrum on 4-22, Palladium, NY on 5-4, and Barton Hall, Cornell Univ. on 5-8). The transition into Franklin is off-the-hook! And what can you say about a 21-minute Frankin’s Tower? May be one of the best of all time!! Any time you have He’s Gone (an incredible 13+ minutes) before the boys propel you into The Other One > Drums > NFA > and then into Black Peter, you have the foundation for one great show!
And check out the next night at Cape Cod! I agree with Purple Gel…it’s just as good as the first night! He’s seen them over 230 times, so pay attention to his reviews. He knows what the hell is talking about! If he says the 2nd set is the best he ever saw in over 230 shows, then obviously he knows what the hell he is talking about! I would have given anything to be at both shows on 5-27 and 5-28, being wasted and having an incredible time in that coliseum where the atmosphere was electric, hot, and jammin’!
And any show that is remastered by Charlie Miller – download it! They are easily the best sounding boards out there!

too perfect.. Da words can describe I just can't type them.. Nice like... Bobby earned his paycheck tonite.. ripping slid gitar
Subject: Worth it !!
Show = 5
Great LS->SOS->Deal. Phil jams big time at the end of LS. Purple Gel is right...this was one of my favorites too !! Awesome 2nd set too !! I've seen comments for some other show that say how bad the '79 Brent shows were until they hit Oakland...listen to this one, and you'll agree that nothing could be further from the truth !! Sweet sound too except a cassette flat spot in SOS. By the way, Happy Birthday Phil.

Subject: Words cannot describe the opening of the 2nd set...
Subject: Finally fixed the speed of the recording
Subject: Top 5 show!!
These CApe Cod shows were magical, the energy was just incfredible, the place was a bandbox, and was very hot inside. This second set is the best I ever saw in over 230 shows. The Dancin > Franklins (over 30 minutes) and He's Gone > Other One about 27 minutes with an awesome Caution Jam in between)is some of the most powerful jammin I saw the boys do. Phil is awesome for the whole show, Brent jams throughout, Jerry is at his best and the rest of the boys are in top form throughout. The sound is excellent... A must for any collection
